  • The sights of Kimolos

    The Sights of Kimolos

    In spite of its small size, Kimolos has a lot of attractions, a Medieval Castle, Museums, orthodox churches, picturesque fishing settlements with the “sirmata” (caves where boats are kept), water spas, the geological monument Skiadi and many more to discover.
  • Beaches


    Clean, leeward beaches easily accessible to everyone, with sand, with pebbles, with shallow or deep water, with rocks from which you can dive or next to water spas, with shade from thrifts and lentisks or even sunbeds, Kimolos satisfies every need for sea and swimming. They have one thing in common though… clean, crystal blue waters.

  • Chorio and the settlements

    Chorio - Settlements

    Kimolos from the ancient times had only one city. So, even today it has only one: Chorio (and not Chora as some insist on calling it, influenced by the other islands).
  • Local flavors and products

  • Το Σκιάδι


    On the northwestern part of Kimolos, west of the “Sklavos” height, there is a huge stone mushroom, which the people of the island call “Skiadi”. A natural monument that lies in the middle of a barren plateau with excellent view.
  • churches

    Orthodox churches

    In spite of its small size, Kimolos is filled with churches. Not one or two, but eighty churches and chapels were erected with toil and faith by the religious people of the island.


The adventurers and the seamen!
The lovers of wild beauty, rocks,
the images of Elytis!

On the golden beaches with the lilies and the thrifts,
at the white little houses of Chorio with the flowered yards,
under the moonlight on calm nights with the sea breeze,
at the charming country churches and the old paths,
under the Cycladic light, the warm “good mornings”,
enchanted by the treasures of the deep blue,
you will also love
the small, silver stroke of the brush in the Aegean.
